    Opening round NCAA sites for volleyball

    Are the sites not announced until the brackets are released on Sunday?

    Correct. ISU's chances of hosting are very slim.

    MU just finished 34-0. I have a feeling we could end up in Columbia. Now that they are good, their front-running fans are showing up. They had 7400 at their last match. Expect more than that for the tournament.

    It's hard to guess what the committee will do, mostly because I think they don't have a clue themselves.

    Columbia or Lexington seem the most likely.

    Thanks for the info. I did notice that ISU is hosting a VB regional in 2014 according to the NCAA website.

    Re: Opening round NCAA sites for volleyball

    I don't know if anybody watched us at KSU, but we played terrible. We got beat by a 5-10 team. I wouldn't worry that much about us in the tourney. We're going to be fodder for somebody. I hope I'm wrong, but we can't do anything right now. This is not the characteristic CJL team, she's lost them. Maybe they'll find some spark, but they're flat. It's embarrassing, really.

    How did we cover for Nolan receiving all year? Every team knows to target her. She's been horrible these last 3 matches. Capezio has hit the wall, I think. I say that, and we'll find out they're all sick or something. Who knows?

    Too bad they stunk it up tonight. KU lost 3-1 at OU. Could have finished tied for second.

    Have to agree. What is going on? The entire year has been a mystery.

    Re: Opening round NCAA sites for volleyball

    I'm going to reserve my "big comment" on this year's team until after the year is over. I just hope they can compete and accomplish the goals they can in the post season. We'll see. Thank you for the photo's from the UT match Wesley, they're awesome. The thing I saw, was how much higher the hands of the UT players were than ours. That's a big determinate in winning in volleyball, I think. Until we breach that talent gap in this conference, we're always playing for 2nd. We didn't finish 2nd, though. That's an issue, because we should have, in my opinion.

    I just don't get it. They played their best volleyball when they swept OU at home and then the wheels just fell off.

    Re: Opening round NCAA sites for volleyball

    Maybe expectations were too high this year, especially after Malloy left; by the way, did she know something we did not? I am not done with Capezio; I think she is a talent, but her play seemed to decline when she played the full cycle - maybe just a coincidence.

    I've ranted enought about Nolan; don't see why she got the time she did - she has NO mobility - and other teams love to go right at her.

    Plus, it is hard to do well with a new setter; jury is still out on Hudson. We did not pass well at all, but neither were we very imaginative in our sets. But this is her first year starting.

    Plus Hurtt frustrates the heck out of me. She has a rocket of an arm, but tips and taps so often. When she does that, she is jus setting up the other team to drive it riught back at us.

    Finally, something was out of sync with the team, because Kristen was off - that is not like her at all. To me, that speaks volumes and means it is a team thing going on and not just individual play.

    BUT, and this is a big BUT, our recruiting has been excellent, Knuth and Kuhrt improved hugely and we have some great additions next year. Like most of you, I am disappointed with what happened, but I still have confidence in CJL and I can see a great future ahead. Too bad this year has been a bit disappointing.

    And another BUT, they can still do a lot damage at the t'ment if.....

    it was mentioned on the blog a couple games ago that Capezio had a foot injury....not sure how long she's had that.

    playing in the Lexington Regional, against Colorado first, Minny if we beat them. Minny's pretty darn good though, so hopefully we get one win!
